APC Clinical Workshop 2 Insights

Clinical Workshop 2.

Preparing students for real-life emergency situations.

If you’re looking at completing the HLT51020 – Diploma of Emergency Health Care, you may be aware that approximately 80% of the course can be completed online. Throughout the course you’ll have to attend two 7-day Clinical Workshops (NSW, VIC, QLD and WA locations); and complete 160 hours of Clinical Placement (supervised work experience).

Clinical Workshop 2 builds on the Basic Life Support (BLS) skills learned and honed in Workshop 1. 

Clinical Workshop 2 focuses on developing Advanced Life Support (ALS) Skills. The main focus of this workshop is to practise clinical activities in a supportive and nurturing environment, whilst being guided and encouraged by our experienced trainers and facilitators. This immersive training environment assists students to practise handling real-life scenarios in a controlled environment.

Advanced Life Support (ALS) is a set of life-saving protocols and skills that extend way beyond Basic Life Support (BLS). ALS centres around urgent patient treatment such as cardiac arrest, stroke, myocardial infarction, trauma and other critical conditions.

The workshop is completed over 7 consecutive days and hosted from a Monday through to Sunday. Enjoy a mix of lectures, interactive workshops, skills station activities, ambulance operations, out-in-the-field scenarios (in all weathers) and of course plenty of time to collaborate and share your experiences with fellow students.
